The special physiology of the Shih Tzu, such as its flowing coat and sensitive skin make it a very unusual breed that needs special attention, especially in terms of its nutrition.Healthy, Shiny, Long Coat Your Shih Tzu has a beautiful coat that needs tender loving care. The laving (flowing) coat being one of the main characteristics of the breed. The hair is long and dense, with a thick undercoat. Shih Tzu adult dry dog food helps to express the coat's natural beauty through a supply of L-cystine and methionine, amino acids essential for renewing the hair, combined with linoleic acid to promote a glossy coat.Sensitive Skin Condition Your Shih Tzu may have especially sensitive skin. This sensitivity is explained by the sometimes excessive reaction of the immune system to the presence of allergens such as dust mites and pollen in the environment.
